Three workers were engrossed doing their assigned tasks when Rajah Soliman, then king of Manila during the pre-Hispanic era, arrived at the construction site. He was so casual in his attire no one recognized him. While inspecting the progress of his project he came upon three workers. After observing them for sometime, he asked each one of them what they were doing.

The first worker said, “I am making a perfect block of stone to make a wall.” The king nodded with a smile and commended the worker.

Then it was the turn of the second worker. “This is my source of living to support my family.” The king nodded and commended the worker.

Finally, it was the turn of the third worker. He greeted the visitor. The king asked him the same question.

“Sir, I am building a fort.” he said with a sense of pride. The king nodded and smiled.

At the end of the day the king called for the third worker and made him overseer of the project.~
